we stayed with friends, they were in the stable block ( porxets ) and we stayed in a apartment in the main monastery building.The apartments are very clean and modern with a shower, fridge and electric cooking rings.The downside is that the doors to the monastery are locked at 11pm until 6am which on a light summers night is frustrating, there are no pots pans,plates or cups provided.Fresh linen/towels are provided on request, just take the old towels to reception.
The porxets look quaint and the fittings are basic, the second bedroom is actually a converted store with bunk beds, it can be hot inside and the windows are covered in flymesh which in our friends case had holes and did the flies take advantage!!.
The restaurant attached to the monastery is good but pricey, we found the staff in the restaurant at the end of the main courtyard Can Amitger to be disinterested and the food mediocre.
The setting is beautiful and there are many walks radiating from the monastery, make your own food and eat outdoors in the courtyard ( we carried out table out )..Also throughout the main summer months it is illegal to light fires in the BBQ areas.
